The Baron. Elegant, Commanding, Aristocrat.
This is a fine writing instrument that is perfect for the person who takes leadership seriously. The Baron has balanced weight. Beautifully elegant details in Chrome Plated detailing. The body on this pen is exhibition grade box Holyland Olive Wood from Bethlehem. Holyland Olive Wood comes from the pruning's of Olive Trees that have been alive in Bethlehem since before Jesus Christ began His ministry. The villages in Bethlehem’s periphery are renown for their ancient olive trees. In fact, the oldest known olive tree in the world is located in the village of Al Walaja on the outskirts of this holy city. These trees are coveted because their olive wood has an exotic burl. These trees are pruned twice a year to ensure that they continue to produce plump olives for pickling and pressing. Olive wood is very hard and is prized for its durability, color, and interesting grain patterns. The wood grain patterns are nothing less than stunning. The fountain pen ink is an International Standard Cartridge refill that you can find either in my shop or on Amazon. It also comes with a Schmidt Converter so that you can draw your own special ink from a bottle if desired. The nib on this pen writes like a dream. A German made 22k Gold with an Iridium nib tip is absolutely the best. This pen is gorgeous. The detail and beauty of this fine writing instrument are perfect for the discriminating collector. Because no two pieces of olive wood are the same with regard to color and pattern, this beautiful pen is truly one-of-a-kind.

Each pen is individually handmade by me, artist-craftsman Alan Huey, in a small shop in Wake Forest North Carolina. Every piece used for the pen body is handpicked with care to match the mechanical hardware of the pen. Materials consist of; various domestic hardwoods, exotic woods, highly figured burl woods, dyed acrylic, metals, stone, or items such as mother of pearl encased in resin. The pen body is shaped on a lathe freehand. Each and every pen is one-of-a-kind due to natural variations in the figure of the grain of the wood, natural variations of the coloring of the material and the free-handed turning (shaping). Before the pen body is joined with the mechanical hardware it is shaped and smoothed using a 12 – 15 step finishing process depending on the body type. Then the body is polished, buffed and waxed with a hard durable wax to help protect the finish of the body. Each and every step performed by hand. There is no superior quality anywhere.
I use only the finest pen hardware available with hard durable plating so that the heirloom quality pen that you purchase will last for generations. Once the pen body and the mechanical hardware are joined, the pen receives a final buffing to make it shine like glass. My goal is not just to make pens, but to produce Fine Writing Instruments.
Whether this pen is a timeless gift for everyday use, or for the discerning collector, my goal is that each piece be not only beautiful and functional, but also exquisite in detail and quality that can ONLY be found handmade at ASH Woodshops. You will be proud to give this pen as a gift or pass this pen, with its fine quality and detail down to your heirs. At ASH Woodshops I will not ship anything that I would not be proud to own and use myself. Start your own collection today!
